Another week of challenges

Hi everyone! I hope you had a good week.

Papercrafter's Corner has a fun inspiration piece for this week's challenge.


I knew I had a balloon stencil somewhere that I thought would be fun to use with watercolors.


 I used Artist Loft watercolors, watercolor paper, and a Unity stamp from the Jan 11 KOM. 

Next up is a Mixed Media Monthly Challenge canvas...


I am having so much fun finding things 'around the house' for this challenge. I used a toy hairbrush for the dots, hearts punched from an old gift card, some leftover screening for the 'ribbon,  and then I broke up a very old cd for the spikes around the Prima flowers. 


The stencil is a 6x6 from DCWV and the stamp is Unity. I wanted to make the word 'happy' bigger so I found a second stamp to finish the sentiment. All the paint is from Plaid.

Have a GREAT week!!

  18. I love how you took so many features from the Magazine Cover at PCC for your balloon card; especially adding the black and white feature. Love it! I love your mixed media board too. Those flowers are awesome and I spotted the old CD immediately. It is so much fun to find items around the house to play with.
